FAIRBANKS — Data released Thursday by College Board taken from its SAT tests show another year of stagnant results in college-bound high school seniors.

The test, one of two commonly used to gauge student readiness and chance of success in college, showed that 43 percent of SAT takers in 2013 were adequately prepared for college-level work.

Data for Alaska students show 3,867 students in the state took the SAT last year.

Their overall mean scores (out of 800 in each section) were 508 in critical reading, 505 in mathematics and 482 in writing.

Nationally, the mean scores were 496 for critical reading, 514 for mathematics and 488 for writing.
